Located in the northernmost region of India, Kashmir is a paradise on earth that beckons travelers with its snow-capped mountains, serene lakes, picturesque valleys, and vibrant culture. In this trip, we will explore two of the most stunning destinations in Kashmir - Gurez Valley and Pahalgam.

Gurez Valley, situated in the high-altitude region of the Himalayas, is a hidden gem that offers breathtaking views of the snow-capped peaks and verdant forests. This pristine valley is known for its unspoiled natural beauty, ancient forts, and picturesque villages, making it a perfect destination for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts alike.

Pahalgam, on the other hand, is a popular hill station nestled amidst the mighty Himalayas. Surrounded by lush greenery, gurgling rivers, and towering peaks, this charming town is a paradise for trekking, hiking, and camping. Pahalgam is also famous for its scenic beauty and serene environment, making it an ideal spot for relaxation and rejuvenation.

So, get ready to embark on a journey of a lifetime and experience the magic of Kashmir with us as we explore the stunning Gurez Valley and Pahalgam.

Report at the Airport by 12 pm. Upon meeting the team at Srinagar Airport, we proceed on a drive through the picturesque "Saffron Fields" of Kashmir and Awantipora Ruins. Upon reaching Pahalgam, we check-in at the hotel and explore the stunning Pahalgam Valley and the renowned Lidder River.

Breakfast

After breakfast we will embark on an excursion trip to Chandanwadi, which marks the starting point of the Amarnath yatra. En route, we will come across the picturesque Betaab Valley, formerly known as the Hajan Valley. This valley gained immense popularity after the Bollywood movie, Betaab, was shot here, leading to its renaming after the movie title.

After having lunch, we will proceed to Aru Valley, located approximately 11 kilometers from Pahalgam. The valley is known for its breathtaking meadows and mountains and serves as the base camp for trekking to Kolahoi Glacier and Tarsar Lake. The village situated on the left bank of Aru River, a tributary of Lidder River, is also worth exploring. We will then return to Srinagar for an overnight stay.

Located 125 km away from Srinagar, Gurez can be reached after a 4-5 hour drive that takes you through the scenic Razdan Pass and offers breathtaking views of Harmukh Peak. Razdan Pass, the highest point (11,672 ft) on the route to Dawar from Srinagar, is renowned for its spectacular vistas of the mountains and valley. If luck is on your side and the clouds permit, you might even catch a glimpse of the towering Harmukh Peak, which is the highest peak in the vicinity. The Army Personnel at Razdan Pass can assist you in locating Harmukh Peak, which often appears behind the floating clouds.

Additionally, we will explore the Habba Khatoon peak, a pyramid-shaped mountain, and the Habba Khatoon spring. In the evening, we will return to the hotel.

During any free time throughout the day, we may opt for a spontaneous hike to explore the natural boundaries of the stunning Gurez valley.

As you proceed further towards Dawar, you will enter the Tulail region. Along the Kishanganga River, you will encounter several quaint villages, each boasting of mesmerizing beauty and captivating your senses. Typically, these villages consist of 25-30 households and are spread out over a distance of approximately 60 kilometers. On this route, Chakwali is the last village before reaching the adjoining Pakistan border. Other villages between Dawar and Chakwali include Barnoi, Shaikhpora, Puarana Tilail, Badugam, Hasangam, Baduab, Miru, Angaikot, and Gujran. Later in the evening, we will drive back to Dawar and spend the night there.

Trekking with wandering souls was a safe and good experience. The team leads were genuinely caring and made sure of everyone's safety despite having a large group.The trek was well designed and it also had an introduction session which served as an icebreaker and made the batch more friendly towards eachother. The crowd was decent and blending, you can meet and make new friends. It was my first time trekking with a group and I would join them soon πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
